    Not the samne spreader Jay.

    I have hooked it up to my skid steer's hydro's works fine, took a few bumps of the valve to get the chain loose and I lubed the @#$% out of it.

    Only has light surface rust. not one hole.

    I am still liking central hydraulics, one place told me to go PTO.

    I found a used Western 10' HD plow for $1500, probally going to go with it for the time being. I am still not sure how much plowing this truck will be doing to spend $4k on a Blizzard.

    It's a Swenson EV100 I downloaded the manual off their site already. Printed out all 35 pages.

    ALot of guys in the mid west use 6.5 hp hondas to run hrdro pumps. I beleive that set up is about 1/2 the cost of engine driven central hydros.

    I got a quote today for a clutch driven hydro system off engine belt for $1220.

    15 gallon tank all hoses with quick disconnects etc...

    Is that just for the parts, or for the whole system installed? That sounds like a pretty good price even if it is just the components. Does it include the control valves for the spreader and plow?

    Alan is the central hydraulic guru as he has installed central hydro's on 2 trucks (i think). I know he installed in on his gmc 550, but not sure about the ford f350 he had.

    Good luck with your setup, seems like a nice size truck for private roads or lots.

    That's for all the parts and plumbing. I got to install it.

    For $60 more I can get a solenoid actuated spreader valve.

    That would make it no levers in the truck at all.

    However with it being a electric clutch, I can use the switch to turn it off and on.

    The same system will also power my hoist.
